During our last fund drive a donor said this: "Covid-19 rules prevent us from singing during my husband's burial service, so we will play the tune while we read the printed words or hum along with the music." Needless to say, this testimony struck us and stuck with us. We never know on any given day how Hymnary.org will be a blessing to people, but we know that around the world, the site is making a powerful difference in the lives of many.

Thanks to all who use Hymnary.org and all who support it with gifts of time, talent and treasure. If you feel moved to support our work today with a gift of any amount and a word of encouragement, we would be grateful.

To donate online, please use the Calvin University secure giving site. If you'd like to make a gift by check, please send it to: Hymnary.org, Calvin University, 3201 Burton Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

What though my joys and comfort die?
The Lord my savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.

Representative Text

1 My dearest friend is Jesus,
On Him I do depend;
He says He will be with me,
Until my journey’s end.

Get in touch with God, my brother,
Get in touch with God, I pray;
Keep in touch with God, my brother,
And walk this narrow way.

2 I know I’ve many trials,
They come from every hand;
I find God’s grace sufficient,
I know He’ll make me stand. [Refrain]

3 I've found a precious promise,
Which comforts me today:
’Tis the promise of the Spirit,
To guide me all the way. [Refrain]

4 Lord, give me holy wisdom,
To walk this narrow way,
And lead me by Thy Spirit,
That I go not astray. [Refrain]

5 I know I love my Savior,
I know that He loves me,
And now we walk together,
Because we can agree. [Refrain]
